Abstract:

The bestselling author of Plain Speaking crafts a candid portrait of one of the most complex, fascinating, difficult, and colorful American presidents. From his birth in 1908 to his death in 1973, the story of Lyndon B. Johnson is told without sparing his personal excesses and contentious public image-while also highlighting the strength of his greatest accomplishments in Washington. Interlaced with interviews from Lady Bird Johnson, John Kenneth Galbraith, J. William Fulbright, Larry O'Brien, Hubert H. Humphrey, and hundreds of others, Miller provides an extensive and objective image of the life of LBJ. "No secret remains. This is Lyndon Johnson true, lunging through life, pouring 'every ounce of his energy' into whatever he did, ranting, raving, shouting, 'screaming at the universe, ' flogging system, staff and self to achieve what others pronounced unachievable ... Miller allows his posse of turncoats-336 in all, myself among them-to lead him to the Johnson few ever knew: at his best, magnificent; at his worst, outrageous."--Horace Busby, The Washington Post "The domestic triumphs and the Johnson style come across like the Fourth of July ... page-by-page, this is the low-down up to the Presidency-and one long book that never flags."--Kirkus Reviews.
